NEW CANAAN, Conn. — New Canaan Police Chief Edward Nadriczny has announced his plans to retire, a release from First Selectman Robert Mallozzi III said.
“I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to lead such an outstanding police department and for making sure we received the resources to keep our officers safe and well trained,” Nadriczny said in a statement. “I can’t stress enough how much I enjoyed working with the community of New Canaan and all of the friends that I was able to make over the years.”
The chief joined the New Canaan Police Department on April 1, 1977 when he was 22 and rose through the ranks of sergeant and lieutenant before being named chief eight years ago, according to his letter. Nadriczny plans on working with the police commission and the town to create a timeline for his retirement, and said he will work “as diligently as I can” until he retires.
“Suffice it to say, [Nadriczny] has given his all to our town and police department,” Mallozzi added in a statement. He went on to list many of the chief’s accomplishments and to say that he considered him a friend.
“I wish [Nadriczny] all the best with his retirement. New Canaan was fortunate to have such a dedicated gentleman serve our community.”
